Leora participates in a photo meme entitled Ruby Tuesday. The idea is that on Tuesdays, you post a photo with a little or a lot of red in it. Simple enough.
I've been thinking about joining in on the fun for some time now and these lilies that Avram brought home on a recent Friday afternoon were just begging to be photographed
I loved them because they were not the traditional "lily orange". They were a velvety, deep red-orange.
The more familiar orange ones always remind me of summers from my childhood in Tannersville, NY where just down the road in an abandoned lot they grew wild in profusion. There were so many that you could pick them every week for the Shabbos table and not even make a dent. (Of course in those carefree years, our children's sensibilities were perfectly content with a bunch of clover blooms in a
cup vase that was hand decorated with some colored tissue paper squares and far more glue than was necessary....)
